By dressing like mods, playing hardcore music right out of the Black Flag playbook, and fighting onstage (and off) like punks, Northern Towns straddles three long-lived and popular San Diego music genres.

The band includes Daniel Sant (Over My Dead Body), Mark Smith (Swindle), Gabe Cross (the Muslims, Soft Pack), Tommy Garcia (Mrs. Magician, Drug Wars), and Brandon Hays (Please Mr. Gravedigger).

Garcia cofounded a new band called Teach Me in 2016.
